Hello friends. I’ve had this topic in the back of my mind for a few years and finally(!) got round to writing something on it. This was kind of inspired by some research I’ve been doing lately about New Age in the Church, as well as things I’ve found out by accident about things I... Continue Reading →
If you heard that your favourite Christian preachers and teachers were teaching you some very false or twisted things, what would you do? Would you: ‘Ignore the haters’ who are just trying to cause division in the body of ChristBriefly consider the possibility, but brush it off because these people seem authentic, your experience tells...

‘and the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made’ – Simon and Garfunkel I know I’m not the only one who found something to complain about during this year’s NYE firework show/dronefest. I know this because articles say others complained about it. It’s a relief to see that I’m not the only cynic out... Continue Reading →
I was contacted recently by Wilberforce Publications who asked me if I'd heard about their latest release. I hadn't. So, they explained, children's book ‘Noah and the Nestling’ by Mary Williamson seeks to teach the value of human life to the very young. WP generously sent me a free copy, and being about to release... Continue Reading →
There, I’ve done it. I’ve broken my vow of silence. I vowed never to openly discuss that dirty l-word, for I don’t like angry mobs. We’re all especially snappy and out of sorts these days. Best hide my opinions behind my probably-not-medical-grade surgical mask, and carry on. I’ve tried (and often failed) to do that... Continue Reading →
It’s been an interesting week for the abortion industry. It came to light that a woman is considering taking legal action against major abortion provider Marie Stopes, after an extremely traumatic experience taking ‘DIY’ abortion pills. In a press release by Christian Concern, ‘Sophie’, who had to have surgery after taking the pills, says she felt she wasn’t... Continue Reading →
I don’t know about you, but bar a gin and tonic on a hot day, there are few things more refreshing in life than hearing a good honest take on something few seem to want to talk about.
After two weeks in quarantine following an impromptu Portugal getaway (sorry bank account), I finally escaped prison and grabbed a couple of drinks with a pal of mine. This pal made the decision some months back to give his life to Christ, and even without the Covid craziness, this has been such a highlight this year.
I’m constantly in awe of how intensely personal and beautifully faithful God is, and for anyone who’s seen someone come to know Jesus for themselves, you know what I mean. You probably also know what I mean when I say that there’s a contagious excitement about being around a person who has grasped the beauty of the gospel for the first time. Reignition for a weary soul.
It seems to be common experience that wherever you lift the lid on some kind of evil, you are sure to find more layers of evil underneath. Recently the interdependence of three particularly insidious industries has been thrown into sharp relief. *Trigger warning – the below discusses some sensitive matter* A couple of weeks back,...

“Like a boil that must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must be exposed to the light of human conscience before it can be cured.” - Martin Luther King Jr It’s been a long time since I posted anything - RealLifeTM and other projects have jostled...

This week has been full of dramatic events (and no, I’m not referring to the pointless mini-dramas of my own life... those tend to be eye-roll worthy, but not blog-worthy).
A poor tourist in a caravan got swept off a cliff in Ireland, Brexit is only six months away (pause to cheer or sob uncontrollably), and Naz Shah, Labour’s shadow minister for equalities, said that pre-natal testing for gender is bad because it allows women to abort baby girls (but it’s apparently still ok to screen for Down’s syndrome).
